Verse of the Day: Deuteronomy on Non-Predatory Lending

By Administrator 08-27-2007

When you make your neighbor a loan of any kind, ... If the person is poor, you shall not sleep in the garment given you as the pledge. You shall give the pledge back by sunset, so that your neighbor may sleep in the cloak and bless you; and it will be to your credit before the Lord your God.

- Deuteronomy 24:10-13
